Every once in a while, the Joey Tribbiani in me really wants a sandwich. And just like Joey, when the craving hits, I want a sandwich in my hands fast!  So when I recently got a craving for a Greek style pita sandwich, I was happy that I had Hungryroot ingredients on hand.  I can make the dishes I want within minutes using their easy-to-prepare food.

I had some of Hungryroot’s Grass-Fed Meatballs in the freezer, a package of their Whole Grain Pita Pockets, cherry tomatoes, baby spinach, and some cucumbers and red onions to use.  All the makings I needed to put a delicious Greek style sandwich together!

Assembling this sandwich is super easy!  The only thing that needs to be warmed up is the meatballs.  They’re already cooked, so it just takes a few minutes.  I slice them in half so they can be tucked into the pita bread nicely.  After they’re warmed up, I like to let them cool slightly so they’re not piping hot inside my sandwich.  Then, I can start tucking the rest of the ingredients inside my pita pocket.

Greek Meatball Pita Sandwiches

Most Greek dishes are made with fresh herbs and vegetables.  So I took that as inspiration for my sandwich.  A sandwich should be simple with layers of flavors that compliment each other.  And I think this Greek pita sandwich accomplishes just that!

I used about half a package of meatballs to make two sandwiches.  I cut the meatballs in half.  Then, I heated some olive oil in a skillet and warmed the meatballs until they were golden brown.  Once the meatballs were warmed through, I took them off the heat and allowed them to cool slightly before filling the pitas.

Then, I sliced two pita pockets open and added a small handful of baby spinach into each pocket, followed by the cherry tomatoes, onion, cucumber, and meatballs.

Before serving the sandwiches, I finished them with a drizzle of tzatziki (I used Kite Hill Plant Based Tzatziki Dip) and a sprinkle of fresh oregano from our garden.
